Kiwi's Winter Maternity Session, Kirkland, WA
We had big plans, this mama and I. We wanted to go on an adventure, to a waterfall, or up to the mountains. But let me tell you, December in Washington can be a real downer weather wise. It would be fun to get lots of snow, but we just end up getting this misty rain for weeks at a time. And when your subject is 9 months pregnant and battling a cold, sometimes the best alternative is to just stay indoors. As any Seattle lifestyle photographer will tell you, you have to roll with the punches. So an in-home maternity session was to be!
Kiwi lives in a beautiful home in the heart of Kirkland, WA and the airy rooms provided us with many patches of light to play with. We even went outside for all of 1 minute but of course it started to rain. Her husband and kids were at work and school and didn't even know about the shoot until after the fact. It's always fun to be in cahoots with a client.
I got to return a few weeks later after the birth of her beautiful daughter and capture the whole family, but we will save that for another post on another day.
